Investigate a former fuel station, which had been the subject of a petroleum leak

GeoDyne Role:

Quantitive Risk Assessment (DQRA) as part of the planning process to provide a remediation strategy

Work Undertaken:

  • Quantitive Risk Assessment
  • Window Sampling Boreholes
  • Regulatory Approval

GeoDyne were appointed by a remediation contractor to provide specialist advice on a former petrol filling station in Dawley, Telford in 2007.

During the late 1990’s the site was subject to a substantial release of petroleum from an underground storage tank. This resulted in regulatory action and an emergency clean up plan being implemented by the owner. This comprised a combination of pump and treat and soil vapour extraction type remediation solutions.

GeoDyne completed a thorough investigation of the site and undertook detailed soil and groundwater quantitative risk assessment (DQRA) works in accordance with current best practice/legislation, as part of the planning process, and delivered a cost effective, pragmatic, technically robust remediation strategy.

The strategy was approved in writing by both the Local Authority and the Environment Agency thereby adding value to the site and enhancing the client's property portfolio.


Petrol filling stations have substantial legacy issues which may adversely impact on a client's redevelopment aspirations.

Phased targeted strategic investigations are required to enable cost effective remedial solutions to be designed and implemented to the satisfaction of all key stakeholders.
